Abstract - A morphometric analysis of some bee populations from Friuli (northeastern Italy) was carried out employing 15 fore-wing characters. Samples of A m ligustica and A m carnica, collected from the respective distribution areas, were also analyzed. On the grounds of the results obtained from a discriminant analysis and a cluster analysis of the Mahalanobis distances, it can be confirmed that the Friuli populations studied are hybrids between A m ligustica and A m carnica.

Key words: A m carnica / A m ligustica / morphometry / northeastern Italy
